University Industry Research

Hello, my name is Scott, Iím performing a research study as a JD/MBA Candidate at Cornell University. Weíre studying the efficiencies of coordinated action within highly fragmented industries. I'm looking for information from business owners and this seems like a great community to get some of that. I'll be compiling a report, and would love to add this communities information. I can post the report here after I'm done. Thanks guys!
